0.30 ct Alexandrite & 1/5 ct tw Diamond Ring, 14K
Disappointed in the Quality
When I received this ring, it looked so small as compared to the picture. I tried hard to like it since it was alexandrite. I was so careful with this ring taking it off to wash my hands etc. But, one of the little tiny diamonds fell out somewhere, I did not receive a send back form with this one, so I had to go online to print one up. I had been going back in forth on whether I should keep the ring or not, and then I decided it was just poor quality and the ring was way too thin. I think if the ring had been a little bit thicker and the little diamond had not fallen out after I was so careful with the ring, I would have kept it. It is a pretty design but the ring is just too thin. I have another alexandrite ring that I bought from QVC in a pave style and it is much better made and is a thicker ring. I love that one, and I wanted to love this one, too. I just felt that for the price that it was not of high quality that I have come to expect from QVC. So, reluctantly, I did send this one back.
A little disappointed
I have ordered three of these rings so far trying to get a good one. Two were cloudy with cracks internally, and visible to the naked eye. One of those didn't change colors while the other changed beautifully. The third I am on the fence about. The stone is not cloudy and so pretty but has a REALLY BIG inclusion right in the middle of it that spiderwebs out to the edges of the stone. I am having a hard time determining if it is a flaw or a flaw with a crack. I do not have a loop so I plan on taking it to a jeweler for an expert opinion. It does change color to a deep purple but not as much as the cloudy cracked one did. I am just not sure what to do. I know to get a flawless alexandrite of this size would be way more than this but if it is cracked, well that is a no brainer it has to go back. I really like this ring and I'm so disappointed it isn't of better quality...not sure if trying anymore will help I think what is left in stock are returns and for obvious reasons!!
I was a little hesitant after reading the negative reviews for this ring, but I am pleased with this purchase. I have always wanted my true birthstone but because they are so rare it has been hard to find at an affordable price in a setting that looks nice. I don't like large rings as I have petite hands. This ring offers both. I can clearly see the color change in the stone and although the ring appears very delicate it is very durable. I were it daily without a problem.
I love this ring, it is on the small side as the reviews stated, but I still wanted it. My ring also changes color in different lighting, not a huge difference but I could tell!!
Delicate and Delightful
It's such a shame that huge rings are the fashion right now, because it seems some people are unable to appreciate the elegance of this ring. My ring changes color and is just beautiful. I am so pleased with it. Also, many women have small hands or fingers and are unable to wear the large rings. This would be perfect for them.
Delicate but elegant!
I was a little nervous ordering this ring based on some of the reviews I read. This is a beautiful DELICATE RING as stated in the description. If you are looking for a ring that has a large presence on the hand this is not for you. If you are looking for something elegant, petite, refined, just a little something that sparkles on your hand this is for you. The alexandrite is clear and mine does change color in various light. I gave it 4 stars because I wish the center stone was just a tad larger. I do think this ring can be worn every day with care. Some women do not prefer bold jewelry and are just looking for something beautiful and understated. You do not need a big ring to be a beautiful ring. In my opinion this is a beautiful delicate ring. Woman of all ages would enjoy.
I couldn't wait to receive this ring after seeing the presentation on the t.v. and the host repeatedly stated that the color of the stone changes in various lighting. The color of the stone in the ring I received did not change color at all. The stones are all small and for the price, so NOT worth the money.
I love QVC and have been happy with many, many purchases, but not this ring.
Have nothing good to say about this ring!
I have never given a 1 star rating for any product from QVC until now. I cannot think of one good thing to say about this ring. No matter what light I took it in, it didn't change colors. My created Alexandrite changed color beautifully when I put it in the same light sources. The diamond accents in this ring are cloudy. The setting is very meager. I hoped this ring would be a college graduation present for my daughter who was born in June. I paid extra shipping to get it here on time. What a waste of money! I bought her a strand of black pearls instead. Don't waste the return shipping on this one because I can guarantee you will return it. QVC usually has great quality, I don't know how they let this one slip in!!!
Beautiful clear alexandrite!
This is a beautiful "delicate" ring as stated in the description. I personally do not like the larger rings that seem so popular now. The alexandrite stone is perfectly clear! In most lighting it is a lovely green color. The diamonds are sparkly in a very nice crisscross 14K gold setting. Love it!
I received an alexandrite ring when I was young and was very heart broken when it was lost. I have been looking for a replacement for years so when I saw this one, I was very excited. You can imagine my disappointment when I received this ring. For $700, the quality was very poor. The stones were all very small, the band was very thin and flimsy, but worst of all, the edges were very rough and this ring could not be worn without snagging and catching on my clothes. This ring was sent back and I will continue my search for a quality alexandrite ring.
I just received my ring and it's breathtaking!! It's my birthstone, but I never thought I could afford one (I usually just get pearls). My stone does change color and the diamonds are quite clear and sparkly. I'd recommend the ring to anyone.
Worth Every Penny
The most expensive purchase I've made at QVC. Worth every penny! Gave it to my wife as a retirement gift and she was absolutely delighted. The stone does change color depending on the light source. A very elegant and understated design. This would make an excellent engagement ring! Five stars and then some!
